In the 1960s Frank Sinatra produced a series of albums in which he and
his friends covered famous Broadway musicals.  One of the shows recorded
by "The Reprise Musical Repertory Theatre" was *Kiss Me Kate*, which is,
of course based on *The Taming of the Shrew*.  Sinatra can be heard in
two of the numbers -- he, Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis Jr. sing "We Open
in Venice"; and Sinatra sings "So in Love."

The gloomy sentiments expressed in "One More For My Baby" echo
throughout the rhetoric of the lost love that could have been throughout
the Bard, IMHO.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Frank's brilliant performance as the
Earl of Oxford in the 1962 Hollywood conspiracy-thriller _The
Stratfordian Candidate_, with John Frankenheimer as Shakespeare, Angela
Lansbury as Queen Elizabeth, James Gregory as the Earl of Salisbury, and
Janet Leigh as Anne Hathaway.
